I’m a fan of Red at IFC but I always feel a tad guilty while dining there. Why? Because while I’m gorging myself on delicious desserts like the glutton I am, there are a host of people who are working out at the Pure gym right below. The fact that Red is owned by the same group and yet has the inverse effect of making my waistline grow instead of shrink just begs for a guilt trip whenever I consume anything in the restaurant.
This is why when I received word of the one night only Alberto Chioni dinner with Italian wine pairing, I was faced with a conundrum. Do I experience this dinner or should I be diligent and go to the gym instead? For those of you who don’t have this dilemma and would like to attend, advanced booking is required for this four-course dinner. Details are as follows:
